here to the chamber of commerce and dan gallagher on the financial regulatory system. president obama unveils his proposal for reducing gun valent earlier this afternoon, featuring an assault weapons ban, a ban on high capacity magazines and a method to close loopholes in the background check system. here are some of his remarks at first, it's time for congress to require a universal background check for anyone trying to buy a gun. [applause] the law already requires background checks to be wrong coming over the last 14 years, that has kept 1.5 million of them on the wrong people from getting their hands on a gun. but it's hard to enforce that law when as many as 40% of all gun purchases are conducted without a background check. it is not safe, it is not smart. it is not fair to responsible gun buyers or sellers. if you like to buy a gun, whether it is from a licensed dealer or private seller, you should be set at least have to show your not a felon or somebody legally prohibited from buying one. this is common sense. an overwhelming majority of americans agree with us on the need for
